Style Icon #TBT with boohoo.com

I know what you’re thinking… Shareen, it’s Monday! Unfortunately due to the beautiful NJ weather and the numerous amount of inches we have accumulated over the last month or so, this post is a little late but regardless it’s a Throwback to one of my favorite Style Icons – Brigitte Bardot. She is known as the Queen of Boho Chic. This style has made a big come back especially during Festival season. What I love most about the Boho look is that you can dress it up or down and still look super chic.

How cute is this dress from boohoo.com?! This dress screams Brigitte Bardot and 60’s/70’s fashion to me. It’s feminine, flowy and floral. I would have loved to pair this dress with a cute pair of sandals but since it’s freezing here – I paired it with over the knee boots, a black bag and a braided thin belt to clinch the waist.

I wanted to show you how versatile a piece like this could be so here are two other ways you can style this type of dress.

Some other celebrities who rock the Boho Chic look flawlessly would be Nicole Richie, Kate Moss & Mary-Kate Olsen. This style is timeless and I don’t see it going away anytime soon. Click HERE to shop more 70’s fashion with boohoo.com.

Nails -Lilac Trouble

I have really been loving the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure collection. I have yet to find another polish that applies so smoothly and last as long as these.

Main Polish: Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Nail Color, Trouble Maker

Accent Polish: Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Nail Color, I Lilac You

For this weeks manicure I also used my dotting tool. I really love incorporating it with my weekly manicures because it’s SO easy to use and can turn a plain manicure into something more creative. THIS is the dotting tool I own.

Here is the finished look:

What’s in your bag? #NYFW

c600x523

New York Fashion Week was held from February 11-19th. It was a week filled with networking, activities, after parties but most importantly…. FASHION! I traveled into NYC from New Jersey so I made sure to have a larger bag with me so I can pack everything I need for the day since I wasn’t be able to head home in between shows. Here are just a few of my MUST HAVE items that I packed with me for #NYFW.

1. My camera, Nikon D3200 – I never leave home without my camera when I am headed to events. As a blogger, the photos accompanying the post are just as important as the content.

2. Business Cards! – This is one of those items that you should always have on you. You never know who you will run into when out & it’s better to be prepared.

3.Cell Phone & battery pack – In this day & age, I don’t know anyone who can be away from their phone for more than 5 minutes. During NYFW, you are constantly checking out social media and posting updates so having a battery pack is super important for when your phone starts to die and you need a recharge.

4. Gum – Self Explanatory, everyone likes minty breath :)

5. Oil Blotting Papers – I’m super oily so I never leave home without blotting papers.

6. Urban Decay Naked on the Run – This palette saved me during this NYFW season. It is the ultimate beauty traveling kit. I usually keep a mini make up bag with me and mid day all the contents are randomly spread throughout my purse. This kit has all your needs in 1 case and has everything you need for a complete look or just a touch up. Here’s what is included: Eyeshadow: Dive (metallic rose w/golden micro-shimmer), Fix (soft taupe matte), Resist (medium metallic taupe), Dare (medium brown matte), Stun (metallic bronze w/light gold micro-shimmer) and 5050 (cool bisque satin). Bronzer: medium bronze matte. Blush: vibrant pink w/light shimmer. Perversion Mascara: blackest black. 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil: Stag (deep brown satin). Naked Lipgloss: Sesso (rose w/pink shimmer). Everything about this palette is perfection. I often find myself reaching for it when I have limited time at home to get ready as well.
